You have some terrific photos for this week. 😀
Such a lovely comment ! 🙂 🙂
Amazing pictures. The one with the tall grass I especially like.
Many thanks, Rabirius. You’ve made my morning.
I prefer by-ways to highways whenever possible (although for long trips, highways are to be preferred. 🙂
These are quite inviting. I hope you have something good planned for the weekend.
Lots of gardening to be done, Janet. Happy weekend to you.
The joys of country living, beautiful images Tish.
Joys of country living indeed, Brian. Very much appreciated in the current madness.
Taking the long way home, Tish? All good with you? 🙂 🙂
Mostly a one-track woman – between the house and the plot, but then you probably knew that 🙂 We’re fine thanks, apart from increasing grumpiness at Rip Van Winkle World. Hope all is well with you and Mick.
He’s out litter picking and I’ve done t’ai chi on Zoom and been to a virtual birthday party in Italy for Manja. On the roof with the washing now. Funny old world, isn’t it? 🤣💕
Definitely it is odd, and likely to get more so. Good to hear you’re keeping up with social activities – if remotely.
Like Janet, I also prefer country living and have very fond memories of the lanes and rural paths around Herts and Cambridge. I like all your shots Tish, especially the last. The light is lovely
Thank you, Su. Country living can have it’s limitations, but just now it’s a blessing, though it’s been accompanied by an Arctic wind for the past week, which is very weird. Hoping for a bit of warmth this weekend. My bean seedlings are shivering.
Hope it warms up soon. We’re experiencing the opposite. Very warm, and so, so dry 🙁
Think the planet must be tipping, making the weather slide around.
Veru good Tish. Those landscapes so remind me of my childhood summers in Normandy…
Nothing quite like French countryside though. I wish I was there. We seem locked into exponential weirdness in the UK.
Exponential weirdness indeed. (And meanwhile Brexit negotiations are moving on to nothingness…) There just was a debate by mail between my Brit friends about who was worse: “the blond buffoon in Downing St” or the blond moron in the White House”… Sigh. 😉🙏🏻
Yep. Too many rocks and hard places at the moment.
How very nicely put Tish… “Trop de marteaux et d’enclumes” as we Frogs would say.
‘enclume’ – what a very nice word. I’ve just been to look it up – ‘anvil’ – which meant I guessed ‘marteaux’. The French have some colourful idioms.
I thought you might check. ‘anvil’ always costs me a fraction of second to remember… No common French or latin root. Saxon? Let’s see. German is ‘amboss’. Definitely the same word. Kwaheri sassa Tish.
There’s nothing quite like. beautiful black and white photographs….and these are beautiful – Janet 🙂
Thank you, Janet. Wishing you a good weekend. It’s finally warmed up a bit here after arctic winds. Maybe time to risk putting the runner beans in…
Starting to warm up here….:)
Love the Footpath to Bradley Farm, Tish…..the light and the textures
Thanks, Sue. V. interesting winter light on that particular day so was lucky to catch it.
You recognised it….so not all luck, Tish
Thanks for that, Sue 🙂
That second picture has an ancient character to it.
Possibly a bit like the photographer 🙂 Thanks, Joseph. That’s an interesting comment.
Yes I have been watching documentaries on the ancient tracks through England. The photo reminded me of that.
Beautiful pics, Tish!
Thank you, Mak.
Enjoyed this countryside walk. Beautifully in mono. 🙂
Thank you, Amy.
Look forward to the day when we will be able to follow long paths again
Not sure when that will be. A surprising number of people seem to be resisting liberation.
Have to say we are not rushing to go out into places where there are others. Currently working through ideas for returning to Portugal without flying
By the way, have you been getting anywhere with WP over issues on your Winchester site. I notice it’s insecure. And my blog keeps going ‘insecure’. My last occurence seemed to be to do with a photo image from a blog post I’d ‘liked’ which then registered on my site’s liked list.
Hiya . . . ooh I hadn’t spotted it had gone insecure. Thanks for letting me know.
I’ve gone through the checks and like you it seems to be connected to when I have liked a post on another blog. In this case it was your last post! So guessing the photo image from the post that upset your website, then continued on to mine 😦 I am now back to secure, but have had to unlike your post for the time being. I will be back to like xx
Mine went back to being secure later yesterday morning. Was it yesterday’s post that you had to unlike? I’ve turned off my ‘like’ and ‘blogroll’ widgets so stuff doesn’t register (at least visually) on my second page. I noticed your site kept being insecure for much of the time we were doing the squares. It was also around the time you, I and others were having various issues with WP over ‘likes’, pingbacks and not being able to accept or make comments. The WP engineers told me it may take time to get to the bottom of my issue over the bugged image as they didn’t understand why it was happening. I anyway unliked the post it was on some weeks back.
Yes was yesterday’s post . . . and during squares there were 3 other blogs when the same thing happened after I liked a post. Most strange
